Happy Campers Layout

 I had fun making this layout.  The cute papers all came from a kit I was given at a scrapbooking retreat from my secret sister and the cutouts were some from grab bags I got at Our on a Limb for .80.  They were well worth the money.  So many of the ladies wouldn't even look at them, but since I cut so many files, I had a good idea what some of the pieces would make so I bought them in an unmarked bag.  We often go to a cabin and we spend a lot of time outdoors so I knew that these pine cones would go somewhere.  The colors look like they were made for this page.  Love it! Layout Challenge...-the first page is for the challenge....2 photos, then I just did the second page to have the rest of the photos done. 

Happy Father's Day Toolbox Card

Aren't these fun.  These are Lori Whitlock files.  I needed something for Father's Day and decided to give these a try.  I made one for my hubby and for my FIL.  I really wish my Dad was still here so I could have made him one also.   I hope they like them.  This was a fun explosion box.  I did adhere the back to the toolbox to give it more stability, but the fileis actually designed to be an explosion box.  

Picture Changer - Smile, Frog, Rainboots

I LOVE LOVE these picture changer cards.  How absolutely fun is this?  This has got to be a way to make someone smile.  I think I could play with them all day.  So much fun to make and receive.  It was also a fun way to learn to use more stamps.  I have been a scrapbooker for years, but I have only been a stamper for about a month.  Sometimes, it is fun to do something new.  So much fun!

Congratulations Piggy Card

Sorry about the poor picture, but ..... not sure what happened.  This was one of  first stamping and coloring projects.  I masked off the pig and stamped the fence and then masked the fence and inked the background.  These were so much fun!  I love how it turned out.  I spent a few hours stamping and coloring and it was so fun.  I need to order more stamps!  I never have gotten into stamping because I could never get a clean image.  I bought a Tim Holtz stamping platform and LOVE LOVE LOVE it.  Everyone should have one.  What a whole new world this is to me.  So much fun!  Hope you like it. embossing folder

3 Peaking Bird Card

What a fun project.   I saw a few cards online like this and decided to give it a try.   I love these little birds.  They are so fun!  I am still learning to blend with my markers, but I think, these turned out pretty cute.  

Happy Birthday Bear Card

This was a fun card to make.   I used my new metallic rubons to create the metal look on the embossed cogs in the background.  It turned our so nice.  This card is for my FIL.  Inside it says, "Growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional!"  LOL.  Like father, like son....just sayin.'

Magic Color Slider Card 1

Oh my goodness, these were SOOO fun.  I wanted a few videos on this color slider card and thought it was so fun.  I don't buy many dies, so I googled a video on how to make them and found a lady that made them manually and in her video she gave the measurements of the card she made.  I wish I had bookmarked the site so I could give her credit, but I didn't.   But I paused the video and wrote down the measurements while I was watching it.   A couple days later, I had a few moments and created my own SVG version of this color slider card and made a bunch of these.  It was so fun.  It was my first time using my new markers and inks to color this card and my first time using acetate on a card.  I even learned that you have to have special ink to do this.  LOL.  With a little tweeking and time, I finally got it.  Because I was learning how to color and ink, I made a bunch of these.  So much fun!  Can't wait to post several more.  I hope you like them.  This one was my first and I made it for a friend who was going through a hard time.  I hope it made her smile.
